    Justice Has Prevailed: PM Modi After Nirbhaya Convicts’ Hanging

    Union Minister for Women and Child Development Smriti Irani lauded the justice delivered by the court of law in Nirbhaya case

    Prime Minister Narendra Modi said justice has prevailed after four men convicted of the gang rape and murder of a Delhi woman were hanged on March 20th, 2020.

    Akshay Thakur, 31, Pawan Gupta, 25, Vinay Sharma, 26, and Mukesh Singh, 32 were hanged to death in Delhi’s Tihar Jail sharp at 5:30 am. Pawan Jallad, the hangman from Uttar Pradesh’s Meerut district, was tasked with the duty to hang the four convicts.

    “It is of utmost importance to ensure dignity and safety of women. Our Nari Shakti has excelled in every field. Together, we have to build a nation where the focus is on women empowerment, where there is emphasis on equality and opportunity,” Modi tweeted.

    Union Minister for Women and Child Development Smriti Irani lauded the justice delivered by the court of law in Nirbhaya case.

    Talking to the media in the Parliament, Irani said, “This is a strong message for every single person in this country who dares to outrage the modesty of women, who thinks that he will escape from the clutch of law after committing a heinous crime against women.”

    Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said, “Today is the day to take a pledge – that now we will not let others be fearless. Police, courts, state government, central government – everyone has to take a pledge that together we will remove the loopholes of the system and will not let this happen to any daughter in future.”
